Girl accused of capturing three folks in the course of the New Orleans custody swap

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) – A woman accused of shooting three people during a custody move in the 7th ward was arrested, New Orleans police said on Sunday, Nov. 21.

Tiffany Davis, 28, was admitted to the Orleans Justice Center prison shortly before 5 p.m. Saturday, about eight hours after she allegedly shot a man and two women in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant on 3100 block of Elysian Fields Avenue would have.

Police said the group had gathered to swap custody of a 6-year-old child, but an argument broke out and “got physically involved” with the three victims.

Davis is charged with drawing a gun and shooting the other three adults. As the police announced on Saturday, the child’s 27-year-old father was hit in the lower abdomen and leg. A 27-year-old woman was shot in the arm and shoulder while another 27-year-old woman was shot in the buttocks, police said.

The condition of the victims was not disclosed.

Prison records show that Davis was charged on three counts of grievous second degree assault, a crime that can be punished with up to 15 years in state prison in Louisiana after conviction. She has also been charged with the illegal use of weapons, a crime that can be punished with 10 to 20 years in prison.

Davis first appeared in court on Sunday afternoon when an attorney for Parish Parish set her bail at $ 14,000.
